Brunswick: Quiet Conflict

In December of 1964, four months after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, as violent confrontations ignited throughout the South, documentary producer Andrew Stern and a small production unit from National Educational Television, the predecessor to PBS, went into Brunswick, Georgia to profile a place where civil rights progress was being made without bloodshed. The one hour program was remarkable both for its content and point of view and for its pioneering production technology: two large mobile units carrying a control panel and three full-size studio cameras. Numerous awards followed. The tape was recently remastered at Duart Lab in New York and has had major screenings at Harvard and Berkeley among other institutions. Stern continued making award-winning documentaries, notably "How Much Is Enough? Decision Making in the Nuclear Age", which won the Polk Award, and was shown twice by PBS and 6 European Countries.
